Last night I watched "Deadliest Catch", a special on the Discovery Channel. This specific episode focused how on behind the scenes footage of the season's episodes. The program which regularly focuses on how fishermen endure bone-chilling ice, brutal waves, and other life risking aspects of life at sea.

During the program I specifically noticed these three aspects of the programs editing:

1. Cutting from wide shots to tight shots- going from a wide shot of the sea and boat to a specific person a wave

2. Natural Sound- The sound of the waves and the fishermen and crewman working out their plans

3. There was always movement in the shots-there was never a still moment where there was no movement within the story

I'm glad you noticed the shots change. You'll probably pay more attention to that from now on.
